EBI researcher wins Corinna Seith award
22 October 2015
Dr Alison Gregory from the University’s Centre for Academic Primary Care is joint winner of the 2015 Corinna Seith Award, run by Women Against Violence Europe (WAVE).
Dr Gregory won the award for her paper, ‘On the outside looking in: the shared burden of domestic violence’, which looks at how domestic violence and abuse affects the friends and family members of the person in the abusive relationship.
She is now poised to begin an Early Career Fellowship from the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute entitled ‘Preventing the ripple-out effect: development of proactive support for the friends and family members of domestic violence survivors’. This research will provide the foundation for developing and piloting a support intervention which is aimed directly at friends and relatives of people experiencing domestic abuse.
